A number of items Rev Billy Graham used to preach with will be showcased in a museum next month.
Museum of the Bible in Washington DC, USA has announced it will open a new Billy Graham exhibit on 5th August.
Some of the key features of the exhibit include pulpits used during one of Rev Graham's first and last major crusades and sermon notes used during one of his largest crusades in South Korea in 1973.
The US evangelist’s personal Bibles will also be showcased, as well as original movie posters from Rev Graham’s World Wide Pictures production company and rare images taken by his personal photographer.
Museum of the Bible said in a statement that the exhibit will highlight the life, work and cultural significance of Rev Graham’s life.
“The exhibit will be divided into two sections. The first will examine the development of Graham into a global revivalist, starting with his roots in the American revival tradition and the postwar context of his early ministry, and the second will explore the impact of his work in the realms of religion, society and politics,” the museum added.
The exhibit entitled Pilgrim Preacher: Billy Graham, the Bible, and the Challenges of the Modern World will be on display through 27th January 2019.
Rev Graham died in February 2018.
